A new province emerging from Camarines Sur?

There is much discussion on the possibility of a new province emerging from Camarines Sur. At the moment, it has taken on the form of a proposed legislation in the House of Representatives and in the Senate.

Eventually, it will be subjected to a ratification by the constituents of the affected province. As such ratification draws closer, the people are once again challenged to understand and analyze the issues involved.

We can only hope and pray that the people will vote guided by a critical and intelligent understanding of the issues at hand. Otherwise, it will again be a battle between vested interests unabashedly appropriating and aligning the talking points to their own personal, political agenda.
